David GibsonFrom the moment he walked onto the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica, Pope Francis dramatically shifted the entire media narrative about the Catholic Church. Two years later, his style of communicating continues to challenge assumptions about the papacy, the church, and what was thought to be an inherently antagonistic relationship between religion and media. Veteran religion writer David Gibson will argue that Pope Francis helps us to understand media as a carrier of public meaning as well as a business. Such an understanding can have a significant impact on the way that religion is covered and, consequently, on religion’s contribution to society.
